Non-contact 3D scanning is a fast and accurate way of digitalising physical objects for use in design, inspection and visualization work.
The use of 3D scanners can be applied to almost any product to accurately capture the physical shape and dimensions which can be reproduced using reverse engineering techniques.
There are several scanning technologies available that can be used to collect comprehensive data for all your scanning needs. Each has its advantages and we can advise you on the most appropriate technology for your project.
3D scanning can be used in almost any engineering process and setting, and as a result there are many different ways that the data obtained can benefit you. It makes digital copy of physical part.3D scanning is useful in reverse Engineering or quality inspection, Rapid Prototyping, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) & Digital archiving.
3D scanning is widely used in manufacturing industry.Main areas in MANUFACTURING industry are
3D Scanning helps in designing dies and mould. 3D Scanning is also used to make modifications in existing die or moulds.
3D scanning is used to check accuracy of first manufactured product.First manufactured part is 3D scanned and scanned data is compared to CAD data for any possible error.
3D Scanning reduces the time involved in creating new CAD data for new product. Instead of making new CAD data for new product, 3D scanning allows to scan existing product and modify it later, so 3D scanning reduces product design time greatly.
3D scanning helps to preserve historical objects into digital form.
It is used to digitize Sculptures, art & architectural work.
3D scanning is now growing its applications in healthcare.
